On Voting: The Undecided Voter

I'm a little fuzzy on the concept of the undecided voter. It's beyond my ability to picture someone who hasn't yet made up their mind about who they're voting for in the national races. This is an important election, and both candidates have been making their positions known for months now. The only way I can see someone not making up their mind is if they don't yet have adequate information. And, right now, the only way I can picture someone not having enough information about the candidates and their views is if they haven't bothered to find out. And anyone that apathetic probably isn't going to vote anyway, and the "undecided non-voter" demographic is utterly unimportant. So who are all of these undecided voters we keep hearing about?
